I'm not sure purely reading lengthy, wordy standards is the best way to advance oneself in process engineering. 

I would think learning more about industrial processes would be more helpful.

Thanks for your reply,
I hope standards are nothing but recorded document of accumulated knowledge over the year.

Hi Sabachi,

 

I think you are junior engineer or a one who has just started in this industry.

 

Just take one equipment / system that has been assigned to you and refer the applicable standards/guidelines. That will help.

 

There are 'n' number of standards/company standards / statutory guidelines / articles that you can find on a single equipment / system.

You can also refer to standards for Hazardous Areas (IEC 60079 series), which are essential for any process engineer to know who works with hydrocarbons, flammable materials, volatiles, etc. Also study IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 (Functional Safety For Process Industry). However, many of the standards are not easy reads, so it is better that you enroll into some online learning courses to get some basic knowledge about the subject, after which the standards may seem a bit easier to read and absorb. You can find some good free online courses at htpps://prettygoodcourses.com on topics such as Hydrogen Sulfide, Hazardous Areas, etc. The paid courses will enable you earn certificates and badges that you can display on your LinkedIn profile and other places online.
